Summer 2020 Technology Camps

Parker Arts is keeping camp registration open by lowering camp maximums to 9 or 12 depending on what is required by the contracted camp provider. Families are encouraged to join a wait list free of charge in the event we may be permitted to have more participants in a classroom.
